“We are so thrilled to be adding Tom to our team,” says principal and executive creative director, Erin Sarofsky. “He has edited a lot of amazing projects over the years. With the influx of work, and the pivot to one-stop shopping, we felt like the timing was right to add an already-trusted talent to the group. We now can look forward to daily interactions filled with his amazing laugh and can-do attitude.”

“From blockbuster movie titles to show opens and brand work, I’ve always loved, admired and respected the magic Sarofsky creates,” Pastorelle adds. “Over the course of my career, some of my best work has involved (Sarofsky EP) Steven Anderson. I’ve done several projects with Sarofsky in the past five years, so I understand the workflow and the inner workings well. I think we make a great team, and I love that I now get to work with them every day.”
